We strongly encourage residents to not leave the Community for anything other than a necessary medical appointment that the physician does not recommend postponing. This is to reduce exposure to the public that hasn’t been screened for signs and symptoms. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time.
We highly recommend all families to sign up for the Caremerge Family Engagement App to receive in-time notifications and text messages regarding updates on the steps we are taking against COVID-19 and to stay engaged with residents.

Effective now through April 30th, we have put a travel policy in place to help protect our residents and employees. Additionally, in order for our communities to be proactive and prevent COVID-19 from spreading through our employees, an employee log has been created for each community to keep track of critical information.
Please see the below resources that can be used to spread awarenss on how to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses.
Cedarhurst is committed to protecting the safety and well-being of our residents, their families, our guests, and our employees. In the last several weeks as concerns have grown over the spread of the novel Coronavirus (“COVID-19”) within the United States, our multidisciplinary COVID-19 Response Team, along with the entire Cedarhurst organization and many outside resources, have worked diligently to best prepare for its impact. Our response and policies are based upon guidance from federal, state and local regulators and are updated when this guidance changes. Our most current policies are found on this website. These policies have been tailored to Cedarhurst’s residents, visitors, families, vendors, employees and other stakeholders.
Our priority with any communicable disease, including the seasonal flu which we deal with every year, is to prevent the virus from being introduced within our Communities. To that end, we have implemented a multitude of policies focused on preventing the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) at our Communities.
Part of our prevention effort is restricting the potential of infection from people non-essential to caring for residents on a day-to-day basis. As such, we are restricting all visitors into our communities until further notice, except for special approved exceptions. While there are no known cases of COVID-19 in our communities, we're taking this action in a proactive effort to safeguard the health and safety of our residents and employees. We understand that this might be inconvenient for you and our residents. We appreciate your cooperation.
Even with aggressive precautions, it is possible an outbreak may still occur if we see the virus spread within the United States. It is also possible that even if we keep the virus outside of our communities, our resources may be impacted by an outbreak, including staffing and supplies. We have implemented a variety of measures to be prepared for these possibilities and are continually assessing our staffing resources and supply capacity.
We are committed to providing timely updates as information changes to our residents, their families and our employees. For additional media inquiries, please reach out to Samantha Prinster, Corporate Director of Communications.
